Despite the rapid growth of the internet, surveys have shown that the majority of small business do not have a website. As more and more people are turning to the internet to obtain information, it is becoming expected that a business has a website. If you don’t, your business may be bypassed for your competition that does have an online presence.

  1. Your Competition is Online.

    Chances are your competition is online which gives them a huge advantage over your business- especially if they are leveraging online marketing potential and have a website that is optimized for search engines.

  2. Extend Your Hours.

    Many people look for information on the internet after business hours. With a website, information about your busines is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This allows your business to be as good as open, even if your establishment is closed.

  3. Offer Significant Information.

    Nowadays, more and more people are turning away from the traditional methods of finding information and looking online. Printed materials such as the Yellow Pages directories are being used less and less. Having a website allows you to offer a limitless amount of relevant information about your business.

  4. Canada is Online!

    With over 80% of Canadians online, you can’t afford not to have a presence there.

  5. Improve Customer Confidence & Your Corporate Image.

    With a professional website, you will instill confidence in your customers while improving your overall corporate image.

  6. Bonus Reason: Increase Your Revenue.

    According to the Small Business Administration, small businesses with websites average $1.07 million per year in sales more than small businesses that are not online. That equates to 39% higher revenue.
